90% Knitting – Episode 9

The big announcement this week is that the Fibernymph Dye Works Etsy shop will open
on Friday, between noon and 2:00 p.m. eastern. Hope you stop by! You can sign up for the
FDW Update Newsletter on the new blog. (I’m still updating the old blog too, but we’ll be
completely switched over in the new few weeks.)

ON THE NEEDLES:

ON THE WHEEL/IN THE DYE:

  • Finished spinning the BFL/Silk in Juniper colorway from Dyeabolical Yarns.
  • Re-started spinning the camel down I started a couple years ago from Anne
    Tullett’s Luxury Natural Fibers
    .
  • Dyed a lot of self-striping sock yarn and variegated light fingering; also sewed up
    our first batch of bags.

RESOURCES/RECOMMENDATIONS:

  • CraftSanity Magazine – available in PDF or hard copy
  • Wendy Johnson’s Japanese Garden Shawl. She’s donating the profits from this
    pattern to the American Red Cross for relief efforts in Japan through the end of
    April. I’m offering a drawing for one copy of this pattern on the Rav group. Enter
    here.
  • I will also be donating any profits I make from now through the end of April from
    my two patterns on Ravelry, Call Before Digging and Twisted & Twining to relief
    efforts in Japan through Mission to the World.

10%:

  • This week’s Quickie KAL will be Bunny Nuggets and/or Chubby Chirps, free
    patterns both from Rebecca Danger. Make either or make both and post pictures
    on the Rav thread to be entered in the monthly KAL drawing. First monthly KAL
    drawing will be on next week’s episode.
  • Going to the Homespun Yarn Party on Sunday in Savage, MD!
  • I’m obsessed with Plants vs. Zombies on the iPad. Totally addictive!

    First of all, thanks to your son for his service in the military. I’m glad he is ok. I pray God’s continued protection over him until he is out of harm’s way.

    Good luck on opening your etsy shop. You have lots of pretty stuff – I would buy all of it if I could! I don’t know what I like most – the yarn or the bags!

    Oops – apparently, I don’t even know how to spell my own name ^^^^ – LOL!!
